Braemar Property Values:  July-August 2017 (Courtyard Series)
While the fall solstice may not be until September twenty-second this year, it certainly felt like fall as soon as we entered September.  The chill in the air reminds me of back to school time, even decades after graduating high school.  Even driving to a listing appointment this afternoon I noticed some early autumn leaves blowing around.  You may think fall is a slow time of year for Bristow real estate, but I'm here to tell you it is what I call our "second spring."  
Right now, we are going to look back at the … (2 comments)

When it comes to writing Braemar Property Value Reports, perhaps the hardest part is coming up with the opening.  Facts and figures are easy to discuss, but coming up with a snazzy open to a market report takes some inspiration.  Having spent the last two days as the "crazy aunt" to two nieces, ages six and eight, I don't think my brain is quite ready for work again.  Of course, that could just be the abnormal amounts of sugar consumed while sharing meals with the nieces.  
Let's just kick this into gear and get to … (4 comments)

Most days I wake up and pay no attention the weather report.  As I was getting ready to head to Wegman's to put a few groceries, after placing a TOO LATE sign topper on a listing in Gainesville, I expected it to be sweltering.  I'm not really sure why.  I was pleasantly surprised to find it was in the low seventies on my thermostat.  Of course, with all the cloud cover Bristow has had lately, I'm not sure why I expected sweltering.  Maybe it's because I've had my nose in the MLS looking at Braemar … (1 comments)

Cloudy days can be the best days for a busy Bristow Real Estate Agent like myself to get paperwork done... and market reports.  Today I'm working on my Braemar Property Value Reports.  This one focuses on sales activity for Courtyard Series homes.  Courtyard homes are one of three different floor plans that share a private courtyard driveway and have limited outdoor space.  Models include the Arlington, Clarendon and Ballston.
There were two Braemar Courtyared home sales between January and February.  The lowest sales price was $399,900.  The highest sales price was $415,000. They were both Ballston models.  One seller gave … (1 comments)

Ever wonder what the difference between the words mostly and mainly would be in a weather forecast?  At this every moment, I am.  Just checked Accuweather for the Bristow forecast.  I'm trying to find the next sunny day so I can take a picture of my latest Braemar listing.  It's going to be mostly cloudy on Sunday and mainly cloudy on Monday.  I'm thinking mostly means less than mainly, so I will be there with my camera tomorrow.  And if the forecast is off completely, I'll be there the next day too.  Of course, cloudy days … (3 comments)

Leaving my Braemar home today it was a perfectly temperate afternoon.  Temps were in the low seventies.  By the time I got this evening, it was in the mid-forties.  That's quite a temperature swing when you aren't prepared.  A short sleeve t-shirt and lightweight jean jacket weren't cutting it.  
Now that I'm nice and toasty in my home office, I can give you the latest market information for Braemar Courtyard Series homes.  If you aren't familiar, with Braemar's different home styles, Courtyard homes are one of three different floor plans that share a private courtyard driveway and have … (1 comments)

The fall real estate market is here in Braemar.  Unfortunately, it will be a couple of months before we know how much real estate is selling this fall.  Right now, in this edition of the Braemar Property Value Report, we are going to look back at the last two months of summer and focus on the Courtyard homes sold.  Before we begin, let's explain what sets Braemar Courtyard homes apart.  Braemar Courtyard homes are one of three different floor plans that share a private courtyard driveway and have very limited outdoor spaces.  Models include the Arlington, Clarendon and Ballston.

It is time for another Braemar Property Value Report focusing on the most recent sales activity for Courtyard homes in our neighborhood.  In particular, we will be looking back at the months of May and June.  Too many time when I run this report, I find no sales, but it seems our market has had a decent amount of activity recently.  
Before we begin, let's clarify exactly what defines a Braemar Courtyard home.   A Braemar Courtyard home is one of three different floor plans that share a private courtyard driveway and have extremely small outdoor spaces. … (1 comments)

Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving yesterday.  It was a gorgeous day to kick back and enjoy the company of friends and family.  Today, instead of braving the busiest shopping day of the year, I am churning out another Braemar Property Value Report.  This particular report is detailing sales of homes in the Courtyard Seires.   If you don't know what a Braemar Courtyard home is,  allow me to explain.

While we've been enjoying spring weather lately in Braemar, the overcast skies and drizzly rain made today a bit cooler.  Driving in the inclement weather was down right unpleasant on the highway, but thankfully, doing the majority of my work in Braemar, I rarely have to hit the highways.
Let's take a look back at the Braemar real estate market, specifically, as it pertains to Courtyard homes.  Of course, if you don't know what a Braemar Courtyard home is, it is one of three different floor plans that share a private courtyard driveway and have extremely … (9 comments)

It's been a pretty mild winter in Bristow so far this year, and we can be thankful for that.  While we've had snow storms, they have not been the kind with snow lingering for days or weeks...unless of course you have a north facing front yard like me.  I'll probably have random lumps of snow on my lawn in April or May.
With the last two months of 2014 behind us, let's take a look back at the Braemar Courtyard home sales and see where our values ended.  Of course, if you don't know what a … (2 comments)

Spring has officially begun in the Braemar real estate market.  With January and February behind us, let's take a look back at the resale activity for Braemar homes in the Courtyard Series.  For those who are unfamiliar with Braemar Courtyard homes, they are characterized by their near zero lot line lots and five homes clustered around a private courtyard driveway.  The models of Courtyard homes include the Arlington, Ballston & Clarendon.
In the first two months of 2012, there was one resale of a Braemar Courtyard home.  And for anyone who follows this report, you'll appreciate that there was at least … (0 comments)
